    I have the hori fight stick and I use it for BBTAG and DBFZ on Switch, and Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 on PC! Really solid to be honest

    As a fighting game noob, it's pretty obvious that the L and R flipping are because R is more important than L on a pad, and would be harder to hit than L when using stick.

    5:30 I believe that "1k" is actually "lk" aka "Light Kick" which is exactly the button you pressed when playing fighting streetfighter.

    I don't understand some things here. He says the first controller feels "plasticy". What does that mean? Light, hollow, flexible? Then, he says that, unfortunately, the buttons on the Hori stick are plastic. Uh…I thought pretty much all controllers have plastic buttons. Does he mean that they use contact pads instead of switches? Also, ALL matte plastic will shine like that keyboard after enough use; oil plus friction equals polish. There seems to be a lot of plastic confusion going on here.

    I’m not liking how most gamers say “D-pad” instead of using “+Control Pad” or any official term used by the console makers (usually found in instruction manuals of games and systems).

    Personally, I like having my hands close together when playing a fighting game. So I use a normal Xbox gamepad. The d-pad clicks letting me know my directional inputs went through & I mainly play on xbox.

    P.S. I play Tekken, Soulcalibur (when the network wants to work), & DBFZ when friends come over.

    Cheapest fight stick is to just build your own. The stick, buttons, wires, and board come as a kit for as low as $13. Drill a few holes in a piece of plywood and screw a couple of 2x4s to it, or just get a piece of tupperware, or even a shoe box and you have a fight stick.

    the reason the MIX box has the WSAD is to avoid the input lag of the joystick. You can just do a quick buh bam going between A and D and boom movin. With a joystick if you’re going from far left to far right that takes time.

    I’ve never used a fight stick but I’ve watched a lot of SF tournament plays and I’ve never seen the MIX box in play, let me know if there’s a pro player out there that plays the MIX box lmao.

    i have the mayflash stick you briefly mentioned in the video, obviously is not as good as the hori stick or other similarly priced sticks but for 50€ is good, buttons and stick are microswitch based so you can swap them with sanwa parts in the future if you want, it's not too big nor too small and the build quality is very good in relation to the price, and it works on pc, ps4 and switch (i don't have an xbox but should work on it too).
    In my opinion it is the best fight stick you can buy for less than 75€.

    I thought I would just make you smile by telling you I use and have nearly mastered the STEAM PAD please check it out before you roll on the floor laughing or press your OFF button on you machine after reading this, I must admit I really struggled with this pad at first but boy, it works fantastic on the PC for emulating the SWITCH/SNEZ/PS3/WII/GAMECUBE, my youngest son is a console king but he can use this STEAM PAD and agrees it has merit:)
    PPS what the hell do you mean "are you a weirdo who plays fighting games on the PC" I will tell you I still play STREET FIGHTER THE NEW CONTENDERS ON THE SNEZ EMULATOR ON THE PC LOL
    Love the channel and your inflammatory remarks, console boy!:)

    For me, I think the Pokken Tournament controller works great for Street Fighter and DBFZ (will soon pick up MK11), hell, I even use it on Sonic Mania.

    How about are recommendation for a switch rhythm game like pianista. The pro controller is ridiculous. Something like a keyboard or button arcade style buttons would be good. But I’m Sure the stick would ruin things because the left and up buttons are programmed for that game.

    I never had a fight stick until now at 30 years old and now me and my son get a kick out out it using our mayflash f300. Picked it up used for $30 to see if we were going to like it. It's excellent and has turned both of us into better players at fighting games and cup head lol. In about 1hr both of us were able to execute special attacks on our Xbox and switch consoles. Inputs are a lot easier then using controllers. We are now looking into another one of higher quality but the F300 was a great start.

    the analog triggers worked for melee since there's light shields depending on how far you press in. it's an outdated mechanic for the newer games but the GameCube controllers can have the springs taken out in five minutes and the triggers no longer have any travel distance

    I just got a mayflash f101 fighting stick. 60-80 dollars, depending if you're in Canada or the US, it shipped quickly, and it's very good. I use it for dbfz and I'm gonna be getting blazeblue cross tag and guilty Gear. I'm using it for the switch and it literally is perfect for a cheap stick. Definitely recommend it. Although if you do have the money, definitely buy a more higher tier one. But if you want a cheap affordable one, definitely recommend it.
